Angus and Angus cross cattle are continuing to dominate the markets with top prices and more importantly, consistent prices being achieved across the board around the country.

In Friday’s Eastern States AuctionsPlus sale (06/11/15), all steers cleared the $3 mark, with only a handful of heifers still in the 200c territory. And has been the trend in recent months, Angus and Angus cross cattle have continued their run of top prices through the online sale.
